Love it or hate it, it’s here to stay

Pantone Marsala

We’ve been waiting on pins and needles for Pantone to announce their 2015 Color of the Year and it finally arrived lat week… along with very mixed feelings. Pantone Marsala (Pantone 18-1438) is described from Pantone as “A naturally robust and earthy wine red… Marsala enriches our bodies and souls.” Hmm… That’s a lot of promise from a color that people are seemingly not 100 percent on board with, don’t you think?

But, since Marsala is here to stay for 2015, we’re going to embrace it… or at least try to! We’re still figuring out exactly how to work Pantone Marsala into our wardrobes and home decor, but these pieces are starting to inspire us. Take a peek and let us know what you think!

  1. who isn’t on board with it? As an event designer, I’ve heard nothing but great things so far. I learned w 2014s Radiant Orchid (which I wasn’t to keen on at first) that the key, in my opinion, is to focus on a range of colors around the color itself to create a full palate full of depth. Pairing this color with deep and light purples, greens and grays makes for some really pretty setups. I can’t wait to use it!
